want to live to 100. it's their environment. the purpose of this "new york times" article and my book "the blue zones," was really to look at the environmental components that explain longevity. >> so, dan, one of the things that fascinated me in this article, this one man in his 60s, living in america, diagnosed with cancer, given nine months to live. he moves home to ikaria and he's feeling better, working in his garden. it's 30 years later, the end of the story is he comes back to talk to the u.s. to talk to his doctors to say what do you think happened to the cancer and his doctors have passed away. it's an amazing story and anecdote but what is it specifically about the lifestyle and diet there that helps treat and prevent cancer? >> well, i think it's probably the diet. it's a very clean environment. it's not only what they eat, it's how they eat. they're not eating standing up or on the run. they tend to eat with their family. it's slow. they're overlooking the aegean. i think also if you look at their terrain, there's not more than 100 yards of flatter rain, so their whole day

they need to go to camp david and get out of the environment to get a deal done here. >> i think that would be a great idea. the co-founder of no labels with me wrote a column in "the daily beast" talking about the leadership principles we need to put in place, which is to tell the truth and no more budgetary gimmicks and govern for the future, which means plans that address growth, opportunity and fairness and put the country first, put partisanship aside and take responsibility and work together. all those things mean let's get in the room together. let's quit the public posturing. let's get down to business. these are too consequenceal as to get the show going now. >> i have to ask you, the president could not have been more clear. i point back to the exit polling, and even his first news conference after being re-elected that the line in the sand where tax rates for the wealthiest americans that make over 250,000le, if you can't start at that point when you have congressman cole, a republican, saying this is what must be done and everybody behind the scenes agrees. the first proposal i

to listen yet, so we've just got to wait. that's obviously not a great environment to move things along. the optimists on both sides think we're going to get a deal, not by christmas, but by new year's. if you ask people, what's the next step? what gets things moving? it's still complicated, and nobody has a consensus on that. the biggest challenge is how you strike a deal this year that has some things left undone for next year. and there's all sorts of people thinking about different kinds of triggers, different kind of things that say, well, if congress doesn't do x, then y kicks in, but there's no agreement on what those need to be. there's going to be more revenue, but things like entitlement reform, tax reform, those things are still very unsettled. >> so senator tom coburn yesterday on "morning joe" became the latest to break rank, saying he could support president obama's tax proposal. coburn joins a growing chorus of republicans from outside the house of representatives, urging house leadership to clear the way for a broad deal that would include tax increases on the wealthy. h
